This spacious campground in Guy Fawkes River National Park is located near the historic town of Dalmorton, which was once a thriving gold-mining town during a short-lived boom.

A quiet campground that’s rarely full, Dalmorton campground has a large mown area that is suitable for group camping or a game of soccer or rugby. There are also logs placed around the fireplaces, encouraging people to sit and share stories whilst enjoying the warmth of the fire on cool evenings.

The campground is on the edge of Boyd River, making it a perfect place to stay if you’d like to while away some holiday time swimming, canoeing or fishing.

At dawn or dusk, see if you can spot the red-necked wallabies around the grounds, or the platypus in the river. At night, brush-tailed possums sometimes visit the campground, and you may hear the sounds of purebred dingoes howling from the surrounding hills.

Getting there: The campground is located on the old Grafton- Glen Innes road near the ghost town of Dalmorton, a once- thriving gold-mining centre in the 1880s. From Grafton follow the Gwydir Highway to Old Grafton Glen Innes Road intersection, follow Old Grafton Glen Innes Road for 67 km to Dalmorton, turn left at Dalmorton onto Chaelundi Road, crossing the Boyd River, campground 500 metres on right.

More bush location than river as river access is a good walk and river on trip did not have much water. Campsites are marked and are barren of grass. Old town is well documented by C S A and gives an insight into past. The 500 meters I think starts at the cattle grate after crossing river as entry point is well up the hill.

The Dalmorton campground is a NSW National Parks site and attracts a fee. Entry is via the Chuelundi Forest Rd for about 1 klm from Grafton-Glen Innes Rd and then down the track 500 m to the campground.
